BY FRANÇOIS CHARTIER
For nearly 35 years, François Chartier has been travelling the world to discover vineyards, meeting the men and women behind the vines and the wines. For 35 years, he has been sharpening his senses by tasting beverages from home and abroad, always with the same curiosity, his passion intact.
Producing his own wines has become an obvious extension of his life’s work, and since 2011, he has been renewing the experience, vintage after vintage, relentlessly fine-tuning each step, from the vineyard to the cellar. His wine production is in collaboration with Pascal Chatonnet, the oenologist and “wine alchemist”, with whom the complicity is obvious. Together, they select, blend, mature and bottle François Chartier Wines in Europe.
FUENTES DEL SILENCIO X CHARTIER
This wine is made in conjunction with the Fuentes del Silencio estate, a fairly new project from 2014 that aims to recover part of the forgotten pre-filoxeric century-old vineyard of the region where the owner, Miguel Alonso, comes from.
Since 2011, François Chartier has been using his experience and knowledge to produce his own line of wines. These wines are selected and blended “by and for” the pleasures of the table. It is a unique approach and a know-how that he tirelessly refines, with the support of his partners. Chartier wines are authentic and they respect the signature of each appellation.
